Clean

Olivier Assayas
France, Canada, UK 2004 / 111’
subtitles: Polish and English
Demonlover Noise

Emily and Lee are a couple that epitomize the term "toxic relationship." He's a party musician while she is a once popular TV star, who the whole band hates. All they have in common now is constant quarrels, drugs and their son, who is under the care of his grandparents. One night, when Emily returns to her hotel from a lonely night's escapade, she finds the police in her room, who are investigating the circumstances of her partner's death. Convicted of drug possession, she goes to jail for six months. After serving her sentence, she must find her own way in life. Clean avoids the traps of easy sentimentalism, concentrating on delicately outlined emotions. The path to a different way of looking at the world does not lead here through a clearly defined formal path, nor is it a story about the bad and dirty world of drugs, nor about the dramatic break-up of a family. There are no spectacular shots, the music does not have to carry the weight of building tension. Emily's only guide to the world she's learning anew is herself.

Olivier Assayas

Born in Paris in 1955, Olivier Assayas is the son of screenwriter Jacques Rémy (whose real name was Raymond Assayas). It was at his father’s side that Olivier took his first steps in the industry while still a teenager. He began making his first short amateur films a little while later. At the same time, he launched his career as a film critic, writing for the famous Cahiers du cinéma. He made his full-length debut with Disorder in 1986. Since then, he has made a number of films that have ensured him a position as one of the most important directors in European cinema. His most acclaimed works include Irma Vep, Something in the Air (an award winner for best screenplay at the Venice Festival) and Clouds of Sils Maria.
